I received my Acer Aspire XC605 yesterday in the mail and started using it today. I downloaded a bunch of updates and restarted the system after which I decided to update to 8.1 through the store.
I restarted my computer again and now it won't boot; I get the Acer logo with the loading dots below it and then a black screen with just the mouse cursor (sometimes not even that). I've tried going to safe mode, but F8 (or any other commands suggested) won't work - I think that is due to the computer starting up too quickly for it to detect the command?
Is there something I could do to revert the changes or fix the issue (I didn't even make discs or something to revert the changes from and I don't know anyone with a working Windows 8) or should I have someone (Acer or an IT store) do a clean instal of Windows 8 (or some IT magic on it)? As the computer came with Windows 8 I don't have discs for installing it.
